No abi problems found so far but you've got a problem with the devel sub packages. The .so links are generated without versions, you have 
to append the 1.9's and 2.0's to their names otherwise if both devel packages are installed, the .so links will come from the last package 
to be installed. I've tried manually naming "lib<mjpegname>.so" to "lib<mjpegname>.1.9.so" but my checking tool doesn't like it. Those 
names are created by libtool during make install. Unfortunately I can't install packages I've built in my Packman home:davepl so I've no 
way of testing this.
